We Need More Members/Participation

Greg has put a lot of effort into building this place. Unfortunately, there just isn't a hell of a lot of activity.

Unfortunately, there's not much I can do from up here in CO.

Would it be politically correct for us to notify people from other forums to take a look and consider joining us?

Better yet, perhaps we convince Les to help us in recruiting since he has a lot of free time on his hands. :D

I have asked a select few individuals who I enjoyed reading thoughts and response from, as well as a few people I made friends with on other forums. For the most part they have all joined up. There are a few things still in the works that should help.

I have and continually spammed the shiatt out of social media (Facebook and Twitter). I am getting the name out there, but new registrations may take time. In the meantime I am putting the LSUFANS.com in peoples heads.

Also, it helps to post topics, post replies to others threads, and just engage the other posting members, etc., as guests who are lurking and reading may join if they see a conversation that sparks their interest, or just see some posting activity going on.

Good post tho brother. I am sure there are some who do not want to see this site succeed but there's no stopping it. I don't care if there are only 20 posting members between now and when I graduate nursing school in two years, I will be spending the money and plastering the LSUFANS.com name everywhere within the borders of Louisiana.

There are lots of LSU fans in Texas too. Especially Houston and Dallas areas.
I may expand the advertising once I feel like the name is making the rounds around the State here. I am trying to make contact with the various alumni groups, but a few have denied my request to post within their groups site or facebook pages.

Once Christmas is over, I am also planning on doing some vinyl window stickers and t-shirts. If any of y'all would like to put a sticker on the back window your vehicle, or would like a shirt. Just let me know and i'll get y'all hooked up.

Greg,
Was Kikkikaka at the top of your list of people you contacted? :D

On a more serious note, would you consider posting user names of posters you have contacted from other sites? That would keep us from contacting them again. There aren't that many I consider quality posters on **************. I participate in the College Football Pick 'Em contest and post on the golf board. ******** is the only other site I visit and not so much anymore.

If you're so inclined, I would say message the one(s) you enjoy interacting with. If they have already joined then maybe they'll start logging in regularly. If they have been contacted already but have yet to join, maybe you'll get them to join. I would love to post a list but honestly I can't remember specific names. Just have too much going on to try.

I notice you avoided answering the question I asked at the beginning of my post. :D

I didn't know y'all were here for the game or I would have been. I haven't been online much the last 3 weeks but actually got to watch Saturday.

Let me add this. "Activity" is subjective. While you may only see 1-5 people logged in at any given moment, we are getting roughly 20+ members a day logging in and reading the forum. That's pretty decent for a relatively new forum. They will eventually start to post as well.

The day before the UGA game, this place had roughly 6100 posts... now we're well over 7500. This place has seen a gross of almost 1500 posts in a weeks time. That's pretty good activity, and it'll only get better.

We have an Official game thread as well as a LIVE Game Day chatbox that I open for the entire day. It'd be great to have ya over here mixing it up. Even tho we're on a Bye this weekend, i'll have the Live chat open.

I'll stop try to stop by... we're building a new barn this weekend so saturday will be pretty busy.

I travel during the week so I usually spend a lot of time online from the hotel. I will try to be better about stopping by... the other place is getting on my last nerve.

The other place is self imploding little by little.
And this place will be here to pick up those who want a non-combative, laid back atmosphere to talk all things LSU. Besides. All the functions of this forum work. I am always sinking money into it to make it better.

Just an FYI. This place is very mobile friendly if you have a smart phone. I added a home screen button for this forum on my iPhone.

I just logged into Tiger Fan to see if I could contact members via PM. I couldn't. Besides the boat, am I missing something?

Im glad this place exists. I love chatting all things LSU football with you all, both good and bad. I don’t care who our HC or OC is, if they deserve criticism, I think it’s fair to discuss without being called a negatiger and being told you’re a know nothing idiot.

I couldn't tell you. If you logged in you aren't banned. Click on a member name and click on "Start a Conversation", only thing I can think of. I haven't been logged in over there since the UGA game.

I don't think you can. No telling when the forum software was last updated... seems like Brett has been MIA for years.

TerryP is running around insecure seeking reassurance he has nothing to worry about by spewing a bunch of stats that mean shit all.
